An Experimental Gravimetric Result for the Revival of Corpuscular Theory
Centre québécois de recherche et de développement de l'aluminium, Chicoutimi, Québec, Canada
Gravity measurements made in the Montreal area during the solar eclipse of 10 May 1994 show a weakening in the soli‐lunar attraction at the time of the occultation. This gravitational anomaly of the eclipse seems to be explainable only within the framework of a corpuscular theory of gravitation. Calculations from two independent phenomena, the gravitational anomaly of the eclipse and the advance of the perihelion of the planets, lead to a satisfactory concordance of the attenuation of gravity through matter. In this study a quantitative connection is established between gravitation and the interaction of neutrinos with matter.
